How about the fact that Russian-based Corporations have being paying for long-term rentals on suites at the Trump Hotel that have not been occupied since before the Inauguration. And some suites have been "rented" by six or seven different entities, all paying full price?

It's funny that the Clinton Foundation, which is an independent charitable foundation with publicly filed financials statements, is called a rampantly corrupt criminal organization.
